I have known Doris and James Coriz from Santo Domingo Pueblo for many years. James always did all the hand cutting of the stones they use for their necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Unfortunately, James passed away several years ago. But, he passed his stone cutting knowledge to the family's younger generation. It is truly a family affair to support Doris, their mother and grandmother. One of the hardest things to do is hand-cut heishi beads to be strung for their jewelry. When you buy their jewelry you know you are getting genuine handmade stones. This pair of Dangle Earrings features Purple Spiney Oyster Shell. 3/4" long.
